> We hosted three community events inside Santa Fe in the wake of the shooting. The food trucks the night of the vigil, the community potluck the next night and the student togetherness event at Gulf Greyhound Park the following Tuesday. This was attended by 1,200 students and nearly 4,000 community members.
